Terenzini’s presentation is titled, “Turning Trees into a Forest: Conclusions from 35 Years of Research on the Effects of College on Students.”

During the last 35 years, researchers have examined a wide array of college influences on a broad range of student outcomes. But what does it all mean? Terenzini will present an emerging conceptual framework that seeks to answer that question.

Terenzini is a distinguished professor of higher education and senior scientist at the Center for the Study of Higher Education at Pennsylvania State University.

The lecture is free and open to the public. To access the ACT Conference Center, enter the campus from Scott Boulevard at ACT Place or North Dubuque Road, then follow the signs for guest parking. (View the campus map)
